Match Funding Contribution: £121k
Project Status: Complete
Summary of Project
Haslett Avenue in Three Bridges runs from Crawley town centre, past Three Bridges railway station towards Pound Hill. Reducing congestion and therefore journey time will improve connections to Crawley town centre and access to Three Bridges railway station. The scheme will refurbish and upgrade the traffic control systems at seven junctions between the Paymasters Generals roundabout and Worth road along the Haslett Avenue East alongside Three Bridges station. Coast to Capital invested Local Growth funding towards construction, project management and consultancy.
In addition to the above project, Crawley offers significant growth opportunities for new and existing businesses. This opportunity in turn support both local residents and those commuting into the area with employment. Streamlining transport facilities is key to the smooth running of businesses and therefore their continued growth. The Crawley's Real Time Passenger Information (RTPI) scheme, which has had Local Growth Funding, has seen the upgrading of existing RTPIs that were at the end of their asset life and also has installed new RTPIs across Crawley including Manor Royal which has improved information for all users. Both rail and bus services have become more accessible and reliable.
